passed the 16.8 million mark needed for 50% of the vote which means this country has voted for a british exit dubbed brexit. to leave the 28-member european union. immigration at the forefront of the leave campaign making the argument for britain to take control of its borders and its economy, taking back the country's national identity and culture. make no mistake this referendum is huge. this result to leave is monument to us. the political and financial ramifications uncertain. the pound falling sharply to its lowest level since the mid-1980s. plummeting against the dollar which will impact wall street and global marks when they open. the leave campaign hailing june 23rd as britain's independence day. kendis, diane. our thanks to lama in london. she mentioned the news of britain's exit upsetting the financial markets. that's already being seen immediately and not favorably. >> let's get the details from abc's chief business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis.
3:33 am
>> reporter: there's only one word to describe what the markets are experiencing right now, and that is panic. around the world, stocks and currencies are selling off. u.s. stocks which still won't officially open for a few more hours are pointing to serious decline. meantime, the british pound is getting hammered to its lowest level since the mid-1980s. while the brexit was discussed for months investors never believed that it would happen until about two weeks ago when some polls showed the leave in the lead and then priced some risk in. but even as of earlier thursday, most figured that the undecideds would break towards the status quo and push remain over the edge. especially because there were so many world leaders sounding the alarm, warning about the catastrophic consequences of a brexit. this is why the actual brexit is causing such a huge shock in markets. as one wall street veteran told me, it may not be the end of the world when the dust clears but
3:34 am
the trouble is that we just doesn't know because this is completely uncharted territory. and if there's one thing wall street hates it's uncertainty. rebecca jarvis, abc news, new york. okay. so even at this early hour, we're being told by the white house that the president has been briefed on the returns and his team keeping him breast about the latest on that and they do expect him to talk with the prime minister david cameron in the next day or so. back here in the u.s., we should mention a second straight day of severe storms has taken a deadly toll. >> virginia and west virginia among the hardest hit. fast moving muddy floodwaters are overwhelming entire communities. an 8-year-old boy was swept away and a toddler has been missing since yesterday afternoon. he is feared dead. one house that was caught on fire was no match for the rushing water. and the whole house was snatched away while still in flames. >> look at that. that's an entire house rolling down the river. rescue operations are still
3:35 am
ongoing and power outages are widespread. tens of thousands are in the dark across virginia, west virginia, and tennessee. >> that same system is responsible for unleashing a wide path of wreckage in the heartland. weather experts have now confirmed that at least ten tornadoes touched down in illinois and ohio. that includes this one that tore through pontiac, illinois with winds up to 125 miles per hour. the clear skies over that area today should allow the clean-up to get under way in ernest. >> a welcome break. there is more wet weather ahead in some spots. justin povick joins us with the forecast. good morning. >> diane, kendis, good morning to you. happy friday. almost to the weekend. that's the good news. better news is the weather will be calming down over the northeast this weekend. still a few pesky storms to get through today from d.c. points south toward richmond. heavy rain, lightning and winds the biggest concern. we're not anticipating a repeat performance of severe weather. that's definitely some good news. out west, roasting here over the
3:36 am
southern tier of states. a big cooldown on the way over the northern half is going to be quite substantial here through the weekend. speaking of the weekend, most of the storms saturday into sunday located over the northern portion of the midwest. and also into the great lakes but again, beautiful in the northeast. diane, kendis, back to you. >> our thanks to justin. we'll turn to politics now, bernie sanders acknowledging earlier this week that he will not be the democratic presidential nominee but he's now telling supporters that they're just getting started. sanders delivered a speech in new york last night and it was called "where we go from here." he urged the crowd to work with him to elect progressives and keep fighting for political change. sanders still has not conceded or endorsed hillary clinton. but he's predicting victories on his platform ideas. donald trump is on a brief vust to scotland for the grand reopening of his golf resort over there. protesters accused him of racism
3:37 am
and bigotry and they're planning to gather outside trump's property. more than a half million people have signed a petition to ban him from entering the uk. there's no word on any planned meetings with english leaders. i think they're busy today. on capitol hill, after nearly 26 hours, house democrats finally ended that dramatic sit-in. civil rights icon and georgia representative john lewis who led the protest declared victory. to be clear, democrats failed to get the republicans to vote on gun legislation but lewis says their point was made to america. the house is now in recess till july 5th. >> we doo do have more grim news in the search for a missing family off florida's gulf coast. rescue crews recovered a second body. that's after finding the body of the teenage daughter. she was wearing a life vest at the time. a father and his three teenage children were missing since sunday. the coast guard has recovered more debris including a sailboat mast. the u.s. marine corps is admitting error after more than 70 years. one of the men in that iconic world war ii photograph of the flag raising on mount suribachi in iwo jima was misidentified.
3:38 am
john bradley was identified as one of the six men hoisting the flag. but the marines have determined that bradley was not in that photo and it was actually harold schultz. we have a little bit of video here. if you blink, you will miss how huge this is. so this tire change here at this year's grand prix of europe takes less than two seconds. >> wow. >> 1.92 to be exact. that ties the record set three years ago, four tires less than two seconds. >> talk about teamwork there. >> that is a little bit of teamwork. >> pit crews practice to service their race cars in as little time as possible. practice makes perfect. there are also lots more of them working on this racer than the single kid changing tires at your local service station. there is that. >> who takes forever. you go to jiffy lube and they're like, you'll be out in 30 minutes but no. three hours later. >> takes me awhile. i have to jump on the jack to get enough torque on it.
3:39 am
>> you do it yourself? >> yeah, i change my own tires. >> i have folks do it. >> you have people do it for you? >> by the way, the pit crew works for the williams formula i team. >> good job, pit crew. coming up, tell us how you really feel, ben. really. like what ben affleck said on the premier of bill simmons talk show about the nfl and deflategate that had the censor bleeper working overtime. >> will there be a magic mike 3? what channing tatum is saying reportedly about which projects he is and is not working on. that story ahead in "the skinny." you're watching "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now" weather, brought to you by american advisors group. ing "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now" weather, brought to you by american advisors group. so the in-laws have moved in with us.
